Helping The Victims Of Sexual Harassment In The Workplace

When a supervisor or co-worker makes unwanted sexual advances toward you in the workplace, you might have questions about what you need to do to make the conduct stop. In some cases, reporting the behavior to those in charge might bring an end to the actions in question, but, there may be situations where reporting things only makes matters worse.

Sexual harassment is a serious problem, and many workers have found themselves the victim of unwanted attention. If your employer refuses to address your concerns, or retaliates or discriminates against you for filing a complaint, you may be able to take action against them. Examples of sexual harassment can include:

  • Inappropriate touching, including kissing or hugging
  • Comments about your appearance or the way you dress
  • Promising raises or promotions in exchange for a relationship
  • Punishing you at work for refusing to engage in a romantic or sexual relationship such as reducing your hours, docking your pay, reassigning or firing you

Valid sexual harassment claims are often extremely difficult to prove, and require the skills of an experienced lawyer in order to uncover specific evidence of the unlawful conduct. As your attorney, I will take your case seriously, and treat you with respect. I have represented a number of clients with sexual harassment claims in New York, and know what is necessary to prepare your case in a way that gets results.

It is important that I stress that not every "gross boss" is engaging in behavior that gives rise to a sexual harassment cause of action. There are some individuals who, despite being terrible people, have not behaved in a way that infringed upon any of your rights. In order for me to be of assistance to you, there must be some conduct that crosses the line. I would be happy to review your case, but I am going to be honest with you. If I do not feel I can help you, I will tell you right away, during our initial consultation. I do not want to waste your time.
